Birding

Vicksburg is a key location on the National Audubon Society’s Great River Birding Trail which extends the entire length of the Mississippi River.

Hundreds of species of birds are recorded annually. Birders from throughout the country come to Vicksburg to make a few check marks on their list of rare and exotic birds. Our vast network of rivers, streams and lakes are home to many species of wading birds. (download Nature Guide)
